Lyrics for Black Sheep (Philosophical Sessions) by Jacob Lee :
[Verse 1]
At 22 years old
They’re telling me I’ll never make it on my own
That I should leave it all behind and let it go
Let the industry decide my tomorrow
But I can feel it and I know I’m getting close
I stand on stage with people singing words I wrote
I feel the music make its way throughout their buds
So if I give it all up now I’ll never know

[Chorus]
You know that I can’t be anybody else
I feel better when I know myself
You keep telling me I need your help
I won’t ever need your help
No, I’ll never need your help

[Verse 2]
At 23 years old
Took just under a year to prove them wrong
Now they decide they want to listen to my songs
And take the credit for what I’ve already done
But everything I’ve done so far I’ve done alone
Now they’re left out leaving missed calls on my phone
Trying to cut in line for tickets to my show
I guess I knew I had it in me all along

[Chorus]
You know that I can’t be anybody else
I feel better when I know myself
You keep telling me I need your help
I won’t ever need your help
No, I’ll never need your help

[Bridge]
I was told when I was 13
I could do things others couldn’t seem to believe ’til they met me
That’s when I’d retreat to my dreams where I see things others couldn’t see through a beat pen and poetry
Now I know I breathe for a reason
Now I know I write from the mind of a teacher
Just to watch the sheep as they wait for a leader
Now I guess they found out who I am

[Chorus]
You know that I can’t be anybody else
I feel better when I know myself
You keep telling me I need your help
I won’t ever need your help
You know that I can’t be anybody else
I feel better when I know myself
You keep telling me I need your help
I won’t ever need your help
No, I’ll never need your help
